The US presidential candidate, Democrat Joe Biden, whose victory has already been announced by the leading American media, has already outlined his first step in a new political status. In particular, he intends to take measures in the fight against coronavirus, Deutsche welle reports, citing Biden's comment to the American media.
On Monday, November 9, Biden plans to present an expert council that will develop a plan to combat the pandemic. This body will be formed even before the names of the members of the new government are announced. According to CNN, the expert council will consist of 12 members.
Biden promised to join forces with state governors and city mayors in the fight against coronavirus during the election campaign.
The United States is among the countries most affected by the coronavirus. Since the start of the pandemic in the United States, about 9.8 million people have been diagnosed with coronavirus, according to Johns Hopkins University. More than 236,000 Americans have died from this dangerous disease.
As we reported earlier, democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden was able to get the 270 electoral votes needed to win the election. Joe Biden has come out on top in most of the key states.
So far, this does not mean an official victory, since the electoral college will elect the US president only on December 14.
According to CNN, 273 electors voted for Joe Biden, while only 213 voted for Donald Trump.
